In the wake of the recent extreme weather across Scotland and after Monday’s (5 August) landslide at Loch Katrine, Stirling Council has issued flooding advice to residents and business owners.
Flood Sign

The information comes as the Met Office has issued a Yellow Weather Warning for rain on Friday 9 August and a Yellow Warning for thunderstorms for Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 August.

Given this forecast, Stirling Council is echoing the messages from the Met Office and SEPA to urge caution to residents and business owners due to this potential flood risk.

The local authority has placed two pallets of sandbags at Callander and Springkerse Roads Depots and urges those who require them to collect in plenty of time.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is Scotland’s environmental regulator and is responsible for issuing flood forecasts and warnings. For live flooding updates, please refer to SEPA. 

Information and advice is available on how to prepare for flooding and what to do if a flood occurs.  

For further advice on what to do in the event of a flood, please refer to the Scottish Flood Forum.

Check the status of Stirling Council river gauges, which show water levels and indicate the state of nearby roads.

Please report any flooding to Stirling Council’s Contact Centre on 01786 404040 and email any flooding pictures to our flood team who are interested in obtaining photographs for their records.
